Jonathan,

Glad you are doing what you do--very important for everyone, especially those who are in the restoration of their culture and spirituality. The 2 ways fit together--if people take the time to really see what both are about!

The art of cigar making is a spefic skill that must be honed and learned over a period of time through trial and error. It is a hand-made skill and the results can not be duplicated by a machine

.I have friends that have done it and I know that there is a bit of a thriving illegal cottage industry in South Florida in which Cuban-American emigrees roll and craft Cohiba knock-offs in their homes and then fit them wiith genuine Cuban Cohiba cigar rings, The cigar rings are smuggled out of Havana by relatives who visit their family members that work at the Cuban cigar factories and steal handfulls of rings for them to take to Miami. When the Miami-made cigars acquire the Cohiba ring their value triples to as much as $25 per cigar..
I'll talk to my friends about the possibility of you learning the skill

Hmm I'm not sure about cigar making, I will ask my mom. As far as cassava bread, interestingly enough there are words for the two types of cassava bread you mention, the large flat one and the small moist one. (I will have to go back and search for the words). To my knowledge both are still made but the moist one seems to be more popular in St. Lucia, probably because it's sweet and white bread has replaced cassava bread as a staple, although we still eat cassava with meals (ground provisions they call it).

I will be headed to St. Lucia in a few weeks so I will ask around. I know we have favorite spot where we get the moist kind because they have so many flavors, even curry flavored. I personally like mine plain but I think I'll try the curry next time.

Sorry that it took so long for me to respond to your last comment in my profile page.
Of course the story of La Virgen De La Caridad Del Cobre is one with which every Cuban is intimately familiar. We all know that there were two Tainos and a black boy in that boat the day that this miraculous icon was discovered floating upon the waters of Nipe Bay. The fact that these two Tainos were forgotten by the rest of the world and that almost every popular image of Caridad Del Cobre that you see typically nowadays shows two white men with beards in the place of the two Taino brothers is a source of puzzlement and bitterness for those of us who know the truth. I have an extensive post in my own website "Caney Circle" about Caridad Del Cobre and about the Hoyos brothers. http://caneycircle.owlweb.org/female2.html

Hi Jonathan, I am well thank you. I have had a a chance to read Moscosso's book (which is basically his dissertation). It is pretty good.

Good luck with your studies. Regards, --Josh

Tau again brother
I responded to your last communication with an extensive explanation of progressive Catholic Liberation Theology and its history in Central America and you did not respond back. I hope there was nothing in my e-mail that offended you. If there was it was not intentional.

I want you to know that I applaud your spiritual conviction, especially in the face of the hostility that has been shown to Catholics in our Resurgence movement recently. I believe that there will not be true unity in our community until we ,as you say, GET OVER the antagonism and intolerance to other religious inclinations.
I want you to be aware of the fact that although i myself am no longer a practicing Catholic I have made it my business to study the positive impact that contemporary popular Catholicism has had on the survival of traditional Indigenous cultures. In Guatemala especially the traditional Mayas owe much of their lifestyle's survival to the tolerant, heroic attitude of some Liberation Theology priests and the popular synchretic local Catholic tradition. These two social elements created a bulwark against the aggressive and disastrous culture-killing proselytization efforts of American Protestant fundamentalist Evangelicals during the tragic decade of the 1980's when Raegan-inspired extermination policies wiped out hundreds of Maya villagers who refused to submit to the alien foreign order.
